Everyone seems to have a vendetta against changing EQ settings when there are plenty of reasons to adjust it even with high-end equipment. I'm really just reiterating darthspartan's post but 99% of computer users are not going to have high-end speakers, so adjusting the EQ almost becomes a must.

Even if you do have high-end speakers you still might need to adjust it a bit. I have my EQ tailored to sound a certain way when I'm sitting in my computer chair. However if I get up and move around the sound changes quite drastically. Its nice to have something to tune the sound to the way you want it in a particular space in the room.

Lets not forget that people have different tastes in the way their music sounds. God forbid if someone moved up the bass or treble sliders a bit to tune the sound a certain way. People are generally correct in saying adjusting the EQ compensates for poor audio equipment but don't act like the world is about to end if someone likes to hear their music differently than you do.

For kicks, here is my EQ.



Your Eq settings are very similar to what i use for my IEM's Bump the bottom drop the mid and boost some high's. This generally brings out the the drums and vocals and backs off on the guitar and bass. I also like how you only changed them a little bit. Its not so drastic that if a different song comes along you have to reset.

edit: that last eq setup posted is ridiculous, unless your speakers are made of turd then you shouldnt need to be making adjustments of a few db, not 20... fail

it might sound better to you but its still going to sound completely wrong compared to how it was recorded

edit 2: just tried that eq setup for a laugh, unbelievable.... how can that possibly sound good through anything...
Hahahaha, what?

How good something sounds is subjective. If this sounds better to her than it did when her EQ was flat, who're you to call it a "fail"? She's not making you listen to it.

People who say things like "oh it's not what the artists wanted it to sound like" are ridiculous too. Who cares what they wanted it to sound like? What's important is how much you enjoy it, and if changing the EQ makes you enjoy it more, that's fine.

Oh and for what it's worth, my EQ is flat, except a slight boost on the low-end to make up for my lack of a subwoofer.

Yeah I don't change the EQ a heck of a lot, this is pretty much a happy medium for most of what I listen to. I change the volume of my sub more than anything else.

true, but the setup suggested by Simca as "settings that almost everyone agrees rock" is plain ridiculous
